Superbowl Champs

6 posts in this topic

The NFL speculators are always making the latest and greatest predictions and barometers based on last years stats, situations, and happenings.

So, if we were to predict the 2008 Vikings off of the 2007 Super Bowl Champs, then we are right on track to be World Champions.

The 2007 Giants started 0-2, finished 10-6, made the playoffs as a wild-card, and won, against all odds, on the road through out the playoffs, and went on to win the Superbowl against the best single season offense to ever play the game.

So, to the optimistic fan, the Vikes shall be 10-6, wild card team, and win the Superbowl.

To the realistic Viking fan, the team finishes 8-8 again, and Chili-Dog w/ Pepper is no longer the head coach.

And to the skeptical fan, the vikes go 5-11, AP gets hurt, and the Vikes play out the end of the season for draft position and take a QB only to spend 3 more seasons trying to see if the kid is an NFL caliber player.

I predict a 10-6 finish, wild card birth, and first round loss, just like the Vikes of the 90's.

With all the money we have spent on players, we have not addressed the Offensive Coordinator position, which in my opinion, is the weaker link then that even of T-Jack.

T-Jack is a rythym QB. If they were aggressive on the first couple series with more passes, I think T-Jack could get the job done. But calling the pass on 3rd and long puts no QB in a comfortable spot, and with the limited experience, he gets tight and his playmanship suffers.

We are predictable, and that has to fall on the coaches.

I think they should coach it both ways. Take a look at yourself, and say "Do I reasonably believe I am tricking the defense into believeing that we are throwing something at them they may not be expecting?"

And then, the only times they do try to pass on first down and then if it is not successful, they panic and go to a run on 2nd down...Then it is 3rd and long.

Furthermore, all the passes that come off of play action are bootlegs to the right side, probably to pull the QB away from the pressure from MCKINNIE being out, and then you limit yourself to the right side of the field with the passes. The probability goes down for converting.

Just let him drop back and read the whole field. Not saying that T-Jack is a great player, but with some creativity from the playcallers and help from the receivers, I think he could be productive.

That is my 2 cents, and I am sticking to it.

here. here! i would have stuck with T-jack. but... oh well. Go vikes!

We need an O-cordinator, who can(is allowed to) think on his own.

I say 9-7(10-6). wild card(maybe). AP-Defense gets us some wins.

I agree to a lot of points. We won't get any better with Fornot if they don't call the right plays. You stay predictable and you are don.

I wish the vikes the best, but I don't think they'll do any better than 8-8. Go Packers! grin

HUGE Viking fan!!! I see 6 wins maybe 7 at tops. Childress needs to go. We need to get a QB that can pass///

We could have Jerry Rice, Randy Moss and Issac Bruce all in their prime and it wouldn't make any diff when T jack is about as accurate as a ShAQ free throw. I don't know where the ball is going, and neither does Jackson.

PLease get rid of him ASAP and start somebody other the GUS with some upside soon--- even Booty!!!!!

Carolina 24 Vikes 12--- time to get pink slips in order.
